“There is no excuse for extreme poverty and social injustice in the 21st century.”

Grant Knisely

Born in Ohio, Grant Knisely graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Mass Communications and a Minor in Digital Media Studies and Film / Video Production from the University of Denver and in 2000 he moved to London to continue his Acting and Film/Video production studies. In 2004, Knisely visited Haiti and was exposed to extreme poverty for the first time. His experiences there made a lasting impression and he became determined to do his part to bring world attention to the issue of social injustice.

Knisely has spent the past ten years living in Singapore and has participated in a variety of humanitarian missions. He has directed and produced three documentary films that have taken him to the frontiers of Nepal, Haiti, Sri Lanka and Timor Leste (East Timor). His current project involves sex trafficking between Nepal and India and plans to screen the documentary in Singapore and Nepal in late 2013.
